Hi Group,

I am doing all the wiring for my new home.
I am trying to hook up the metersocket for my overhead service, but it doesn't look like what I remebered.

Could someone walk me through connecting this just to make sure I have it right?

Holy chit! What are you thinking? Trying to install a service from what you think it should look like? I would not even think of giving advice on this one other than hire an electrician. I presume you either live alone or do not care about the well being of your family because this is NOT a job for a do it yourselfer. There are too many areas to screw up that can cause injury or death. Anyway have a nice day!

Dear Corwin,
Listen to Scott. I personally know of a "former" friend that tried to do just that. He invented a new dance before he crossed over. I've done this on my own many times, but at the risk of creating another new dance, I suggest you defer to the expertise of a reliable contractor. By the wording of your post, it tells me that you simply do not have the experience to do this yourself. This is not sarcasism. My reply is to let you know that this type of job is better left to professionals.
Good Luck, and be safe,
